BEAUTIFUL book and Nick Malgieri is a trusted chef and favorite author, but the type if tiny and light gray and almost impossible to read. I WISH the designer of this book had done Nick the service he deserves and made this book easy to read and cook from. What a shame!I've had it a couple of weeks now, and made the oil crust (which was wonderful) for a savory pie. I struggled to read the instructions, but LOVED the crust! Mr. Malgieri is the best! The book designers are not . . . as customers more of us should complain about recipes being difficult to read because of poor book design. Neither the authors or the cooks deserve this.
I recently picked up baking as a hobby and purchased this book based on the good reviews. So far, I've made the traditional Vienna apple strudel / strudel dough, olive oil dough, and a quiche. Everything turned out delicious. The instructions were clear and easy to follow.On a side note, the author appears to take a practical approach in providing weight measurements in this book - for example, only volume measurements tend to be provided for pie or quiche filling recipes whereas weight and volume measurements are provided for dough recipes (where precision is likely to be of greater importance).Overall, I am very happy I purchased this book.
Loved the book only wished the printing was a better easier to read. It was light and so small. Great book though.
I couldn't be happier with this recipe book! I have made two tarts and they both have been delicious. The recipes are easy to follow and the results are consistent and lovely. I particularly enjoyed the chocolate raspberry tart with chocolate cookie crust. I was incredibly pleased with the result and it tasted like something you would sinfully indulge in after an expensive dinner at a fancy restaurant. Nick Malgieri truly has perfected these recipes and provides a lot of information and tips with each type of dough and filling. However, I do advise before you begin to make something to thoroughly read all the information applicable to the recipe you are following-- I have noticed in both "Pastry" and "Perfect Cakes" that important information is sometimes found in places that you don't expect, for example, under the techniques portion of the book. The book itself is beautiful, too. The cover has a nice, matte finish, and the pages are printed on a thick, matte paper as well that have a great feel and texture. However, be careful handling the book while you are baking if you want to keep it in good condition. If you are looking for a lovely book with interesting and tasty pastry recipes, both sweet and savory, BUY THIS BOOK! It has a wonderful variety for all preferences and tastes.
Wonderful, beautiful book from the pastry master Nick Malgieri. I have some of his other baking books, and this one is the best. I especially wanted it for his demystification of the strudel making process!!!!!
Nick Malgieri's "Pastry" is a fabulous book! Anyone wanting to make "foolproof pastry" at home - you're in luck! The recipes are foolproof and easy for the novice home baker, all the way to the most advanced baker. Nothing in this book turns you away from creating delicious and mouthwatering professional style pastries. With recipes such as "French Lemon Meringue Tart" (page 48), "Cranberry Pecan Pie" (page 68), "Raspberry Cream Pie" (page 79), "Mexican Chicken Pie" (page 113), "Pear and Almond Dumplings" (page 169), and "Brioche Loaves" (page 188) how could you pass up such a book!? The instructions and photos guarantee perfect pastry. I highly recommend this book for those who want tried and true, foolproof - home and kitchen tested pastry recipes. Such a great book!
This is a beautiful book with lovely photography and well-written recipes along with other baking information for the home cook. A must-have!
i have every one of his books and love them. if you follow the recipe exactly, you will be successful
